opals are so beautiful.  I love black opals.  One cool thing about opals is that fossils and petrified wood can be made of opal.  The Field museum has a plesiosaur vertebrae made entire of opal, and it’s so cool!

I love it! An opal ring that belonged to my grandmother will be my “something old”. What a cool eBay find!

OP–that is gorgeous!

 

@DevolSyawla:  It’s Fi’s birthstone too–it makes her angry when cheap jewelers use Pink Zircon instead of actual opal. I’d love to see more opal too, because I need birthday ideas!

My parents gave me an opal ring for my 18th birthday, its really beautiful but I can’t get my rubbish camera phone to do it any justice. Excuse my hands, i’ve been cleaning all morning so they look a bit sad.

Gorgeous photos, ladies! I ADORE opals…. I have been hunting online for an opal and diamond anniversary band…. I’d like something skinny and stackable, but no such luck yet. Opals and diamonds are just a gorgeous combination.

This isn’t my ring, but I loooove it and would like to recreate it some day. (Opals in the halo.)

I love opals. OP that ring is lovely.

I don’t have an opal ring but I do have an opal necklace that my fiance got me for Christmas.

@star_dust:  Beautiful present !! No doubt your Mom will be pleased.

I too am a fan of opals and have a ring myself, Australian Opal surrounded by Diamonds.  Just be aware that they require some special TLC because they are a fairly FRAGILE stone.  You can GOOGLE more about them on line and how to care for them.  (I did have a mishap… and lost the original centre stone in my ring… fortunately, I had purchased a Ring Warranty… so the Jeweller replaced the centre stone)

Opals are my birthstone and I wore an opal ring from my parents from 8th grade until I got married (I don’t think I have a picture of it right now, though, boo….)
